ODS Alloys for Fossil Energy Application

-! Increase efficiencies of fossil fuel systems require materials that can reliably operate at higher temperatures and pressures -! ODS steels out perform Ni-based superalloys in terms of creep and oxidation resistance at temperature above 900ºC and could be used up to 1200ºC -! Need to take advantage of the full potential of ODS alloys to balance the cost of alloy fabrication -! Potential applications: HT heat exchanger, fuel nozzles & combustors can for turbines fired with H2

ODS Alloys Process

-!Mechanically Alloyed powder: metallic powder with 5-10 nm Y2O3 particles: nano-precipitates stable at high TºC -!Alloys composition:

Development of Non-Fusion Joining Techniques for ODS Alloys

1. Inertia Welding ­ readily available industrial technique, produces robust joints with acceptable high temperature creep performance. 2. Pulse Plasma Assisted Diffusion produced joints with performance 75% of the base material in incremental load tests 3. Friction stir welding 4. Transient Liquid Phase ­ failure to propagate recrystallization limits application scope 5. Magnetic Pulse joining successful in providing hermetical seals and Joints. Technique applicable only to thin sections. Limited Scope 6. Explosive bonding


Pulsed plasma-assisted diffusion bonding gives excellent results
